T.R. Knight Covers Entertainment Weekly

T.R. Knight takes the latest cover of Entertainment Weekly and explains the gradual “breakdown of communication” between himself and Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes. Here’s what the 36-year-old actor shared:

On why he left the hit medical drama: “My five-year experience proved to me that I could not trust any answer that was given [about my character George]. And with respect, I’m going to leave it at that.”

On Shonda discouraging T.R. from coming out of the closet during the Isaiah Washington controversy: “I think she was concerned about having my statement come out so close to the [initial] event.” (Shonda denies this: “I said, ‘If you want to come out, that’s awesome.’”

On walking away from a $14 million contract: “From an outsider’s perspective, I get the [impression that] ‘He’s just a spoiled actor…he doesn’t know how good he has it.’ There are a lot of people who would like to be in my position. But in the end, I need to be fulfilled in my work.”

Check out T.R.‘s first official statement about leaving Grey’s here. He’ll be performing on Broadway next year.
